Freesia flowers are quite fragrant with a sweet, fruity aroma. This unique flower holds its blossoms on the upper side of the stem, with the flowers opening from the bottom to the top. Its fairly common for the buds on the tip of the stem to never open. This flower is seen at a higher price cost because it takes approximately 8 months to grow a crop of Freesia.
